General Motors Recalls Nearly 780,000 Cars To Fix Deadly Problem
Six people have been killed in crashes related to the problem
The recall affects Chevrolet Cobalts and Pontiac G5s from the 2005 through 2007 model years.
U.S. safety regulators say the weight of the key ring and rough roads can move the ignition switch out of the run position, cutting the engine and electricity. If that happens, air bags may not work.
GM says there have been 22 crashes from the problem. All happened at high speeds.
Dealers will replace the ignition switch for free. GM says owners should remove nonessential items from key rings until the problem is fixed.
